Notice: A short term loan provides the cash needed to meet an immediate short-term cash flow problem. It is not a solution for longer term financial problems for which longer term financing may be more appropriate. You may want to discuss your financial situation with a nonprofit financial counseling service in your community. You will be charged additional fees if you renew the loan.
AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE ALL DISPUTES: By signing below and to induce us, South Gate to process your application for a loan, you and we agree that any and all claims, disputes or controversies that we or our servicers or agents have against you or that you have against us, our servicers, agents, directors, officers and employees, that arise out of your application for one or more loans, the Loan Agreements that govern your repayment obligations, the loan for which you are applying or any other loan we previously made or later make to you, this Agreement To Arbitrate All Disputes, collection of the loan or loans, or alleging fraud or misrepresentation, whether under the common law or pursuant to federal or state statute or regulation, or otherwise, including disputes as to the matters subject to arbitration, shall be resolved by binding individual (and not class) arbitration by and under the Code of Procedure of the National Arbitration Forum (“NAF”) in effect at the time the claim is filed. This Agreement To Arbitrate All Disputes shall apply no matter by whom or against whom the claim is filed. Rules and forms of the NAF may be obtained and all claims shall be filed at any NAF office, on the World Wide Web at www.arb-forum.com, or at “National Arbitration Forum, P.O. Box 50191, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55405-0191.” If you are unable to pay the costs of arbitration, your arbitration fees may be waived by the NAF. The cost of a participatory hearing, if one is held at your or our request, will be paid for solely by us if the amount of the claim is $15,000 or less. Unless otherwise ordered by the arbitrator, you and we agree to equally share the costs of a participatory hearing if the claim is for more than $15,000 or less than $75,000. Any participatory hearing will take place at a location near your residence. This arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce. It shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. Sections 1-16. Judgment upon the award may be entered by any party in any court having jurisdiction. This Agreement To Arbitrate All Disputes is an independent agreement and shall survive the closing, funding, repayment and/or default of the loan for which you are applying.

DECIDE THE DISPUTES BUT HAVE AGREED INSTEAD TO RESOLVE DISPUTES THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION.
